Shenhua v Shenzhen venue change

Shanghai Shenhua will play their next home game against Shenzhen at Shanghai Stadium on Friday night, instead of their home field, Hongkou Football Stadium.

The club made the announcement yesterday on its official website, but as usual, a clear explanation for the unusual choice of venue was lacking. However it should be pointed out that neither the date nor venue of the fixture had been set at all until yesterday, again for reasons unknown.

For those not familiar with how to get to Shanghai Stadium, public transport options are plentiful. Shanghai Indoor Stadium station on metro line 1/4, Shanghai Stadium station on line 4, and Caoxi Bei Lu station on line 3 are all within walking distance of the venue. Check the excellent Explore Shanghai metro map if you still aren’t sure.

If you are a season ticket holder, your ticket will of course get you into the ground, but no word yet on which gate.

The game will kick off at 19:45 this Friday evening.

    It’s because of the Andy Kwok concert at Hongkou Stadium on the 16th.
    The strange thing is that one of the other two games without set dates on the Shenhua schedule is also against Shenzhen. Coincidence?

    Thanks for that Micah. I’ve no idea why Shenhua didn’t just say this on their official announcement. And I think you may be onto something with the other unconfirmed date game against Shenzhen.

    If not for this fine site I would have marched a group of ten to the wrong stadium, xie xie!
